The newspaper El Pais has reported that the Spanish tourism industry has experienced an unexpected boost during the summer, thanks to the large number of domestic tourists travelling across the country, far more than in 2019. “The summer has been very good. We have hotels that have even done better than in August 2019,” says Antonio Catalón, the president of AC Hotels by Marriott. Fears of the impact of the Delta variant of the coronavirus, which led to the UK, Germany and France recommending against travel to Spain, was largely eased by the strong progress of the country’s vaccination drive, with 70% of the population now fully vaccinated. However, the industry acknowledges that it needs to win back foreign tourists, who are key to the success of the tourism sector in Spain.
